The Morning Report
San Diego news and info
you need to take on the day.

Good morning from Hillcrest.

  • We’ll start the day with football stadium news. A small city dropped a lawsuit in Los Angeles County that aimed to stall a stadium project in the city of Industry, the L.A. Times reports. But there’s more to go before the project receives approval. A residents group hasn’t signed on to the settlement, and there’s still the possibility of the state Legislature exempting the stadium from environmental rules. The site has been mentioned as a possible home for the Chargers.
  • San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders and City Councilman Todd Gloria took to the streets to celebrate road repair yesterday. Gloria said the city needs to prioritize infrastructure maintenance.
  • History man alert! We tell the untold story behind the mayor’s contention that a 19th century attorney opposed San Diegans having water.
  • Watkins alert! The U-T reports that embattled Airport Authority Chairman Bob Watkins could be violating city zoning rules. Watkins is scheduled to meet with the mayor today. Read more about the saga here.
  • This one’s for all the environmental engineers who read The Agenda. Two professors explain the difference between a trap and a flap in sewer construction.  This is a follow to my story about sewer gases affecting a downtown condo complex.
  • In other news around San Diego County, Chula Vista’s search for a temporary council member is stalled by lawsuit threats. Oceanside council members rejected overtures to reduce the number of city advisory groups.
  • In opinion news, the U-T is hoping that the city of San Diego’s problems with the Securities and Exchange Commission get settled soon.
  • Finally, the wife of a Texas oil tycoon is suing the city of Del Mar over an order to prune her plants.
